We are covering the book of James for a while at our church. I love the book of James. It is probably the oldest book in the New Testament. We see in the book of James a challenge to us as believers to not just "talk the talk," but to "walk the walk." We covered the first half of James 2 today. Andy (our teaching pastor) focused on favoritism. Do we show favorites? Absolutely we do! We show favorites in a lot of areas of our life. My mind kept rolling with so many ideas for him to speak about. My mind never does this. It was kind of a distraction. His main points were very good, but I wanted him to go deeper with some of them. I told Nate I should have preached the sermon. :-) I am anxious to talk to Nate more about this as we only touched briefly on it this afternoon. I think what I like most about this book is that it is black and white with so many issues us as Christians struggle with. It's plain and simple. I like that.
Are you showing favoritism in the workplace? In your friendships? In yourself?
